A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Song of Songs 2:4

This Week’s Memory Verse:
He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
Song of Songs 2:4 KJV

This Week’s Message:
I chose this weeks verse because it reminds me of a time in the future when I am going to be going into God’s Kingdom in heaven where Jesus will be waiting to take me to dine at His Marriage Supper of the Lamb as spoken of in Revelation 19:6-9.
I am not sure if this weeks verse is referring to that time or if it is just a reminder to me, but I think it could be and I know there will be such a time for me for God’s word says so. Therefore, it seems to be a great, encouraging verse to memorize.

The book Song of Songs does not specifically mention the name of God, Lord, or Christ, however there are several verses in it that I think make reference to one of those names and this verse is one of those.

I hope you will join me in memorizing this scripture this week and that you are as encouraged by it as I am.

Blessings to you this week as you rest in His love and look forward to a great time in the future in His Kingdom.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Ruth 2:12

This Week’s Memory Verse: Ruth 2:12 KJV
The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.

This Week’s Message:
This week’s verse is what Boaz, an Israelite, spoke to Ruth, who was a foreigner in his land.  It is a Blessing he bestowed upon Ruth because of her actions.
Ruth was a Moabite, not an Israelite.  She was of a people whose lifestyle was very different than the Israelites.
After Ruth lost her husband, who was one of Naomi’s sons, she chose to leave her country, her family, her friends and her people and go with Naomi, her Israelite mother-in-law, to help her and protect her on a journey to a new land, among people whom she did not know, people who worshiped and believed in a God she did not know.
Ruth showed genuine compassion and love for her mother-in-law and chose to trust in God because she saw and admired the faith of Naomi and the Israelite people. Boaz saw this quality in her and chose to bless her because of it.

Let’s memorize this verse this week as a reminder to challenge ourselves to live our life as Ruth did. Selfless, Humble, Compassionate, Loving and Trusting.
As we live out our faith daily, others will see and admire these qualities in us, God will be glorified, and we will be blessed.

This Week’s Memory Verse: Nehemiah 9:17 KJV
…but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness,…

This Week’s Message:
In this chapter of Nehemiah we see the children of Israel fasting, praying, repenting and worshipping the Lord. They are reading His word and declaring who He is.

This Week’s Memory Verse: Micah 6:8 NKJV
He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the LORD require of you
But to do justly, To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?

( For those who choose to memorize in the KJV
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
Micah 6:8 KJV )

This Week’s Message:
What does God want? Goodness, Mercy, Love, Justice and a Relationship with you.
This Week’s verse shows us pretty plainly how the LORD wants us to live.

  • The verse says that God has shown us what is good and that is:
  • He wants us to be fully committed to Him and walk humbly with Him daily.
  • He wants us to be upright in all our daily doings.
  • He wants us to be merciful towards others as He has been merciful towards us.
  • He wants us to do good, be kind, loving, exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit in our lives.

When you think about it, what He is requiring of us is no more than He has done.
He is not asking much of us, He just wants us to have a close personal relationship with Him, one in which we love Him as He loves us.
If we do this our lives will be good, spiritually rich, and full of blessings.

Memorize this verse to remind yourself daily how the LORD wants you to live.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Jonah 2:9

This Week’s Memory Verse: Jonah 2:9 NKJV
But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.”

This Week’s Message:
Jonah was in repentance for his disobedience to the LORD. He had deliberately disobeyed what the LORD had told him to do and then paid the consequence for his actions.
When he was in the belly of the fish that the LORD had sent to save him from drowning he repented of his disobedience and offered a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD for saving him and he also vowed to the LORD that he would obey in the future, for he acknowledged that his salvation was of the LORD.

We can all learn from the story of Jonah that obedience to the LORD is always necessary. And, by memorizing this week’s verse we can remind ourselves that if the LORD tells us to do something, we had best obey and do it, for otherwise we may not only jeopardize our life but we may also endanger others.
Therefore, this week let’s offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD
for His Salvation and let’s  be sure to be obedient to whatever He has told us to do.

Also, we must always be careful in making vows to the LORD, for He does not take what we vow lightly.
He loves us with an everlasting love and He will discipline us if need be to keep us from going astray. So, this verse gives us plenty of food for thought this week.

As we memorize this verse, it would do us all well to read or re-read the book of Jonah, for there are some valuable lessons we can all learn from this short book.
It will be good to share this Jonah story with others who have never read it or heard about it for as we see in the story, the LORD even used Jonah’s disobedience and consequences to cause unbelievers to come to know Him and to call upon Him.

If you would like you can Print the verse out in a card format to post to your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, car visor, or other place that would keep it in your daily vision.
It will help to remind you to memorize it as you go through your day and also could be a great tool in sharing with others who might

Blessings to you this week as you memorize the word of the LORD, obey what He is telling you through it, and share it with others.

A to Z-Book by Book Scripture Memorization: Deut. 6:5

This Week’s Memory Verse: Deuteronomy 6:5 ESV
You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

  • This Week’s Message:
    This week’s verse is probably a familiar one to most of you. It is an important one and a very good one to not only memorize but to also commit to doing daily.

    Moses first spoke this verse to the Israelites, but Jesus also spoke it to his followers.
    ( see Matthew 22:37. Mark 12:30 and Luke 10:27)
    Jesus said “This is the first and great commandment.” Matthew 22:38.
    So, I would say it is a very important verse to not only memorize but also to do.

    Loving the LORD your God with all your heart, soul and might,

  • would be completely submitting yourself to Him in all things, all the time.
  • It would be saying daily “not my will, but Your will, LORD God”
  • It would be saying daily “It’s not about me, but only about You LORD God”
  • In all we say, think, do, we believers should live for Him every moment of every day.

So let’s Memorize and Live this verse daily—it is “the first and great commandment” and will be a blessing to our lives and also to those we come in contact with daily.

Fear Not Scripture: Joshua 8:1

No Fear--Joshua8-1And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed:…Joshua 8:1 KJV

Once again the LORD is saying “Fear not”. First, He was telling Moses to tell the people of Israel, then He was telling Moses to tell Joshua, and now He is telling Joshua Himself.

Joshua is now in charge, Moses is gone and Joshua is the new leader of Israel. He led the people across the Jordan River. He led them to Jericho where God caused the walls to fall down and the Israelites o conquered it. However, now, Joshua is troubled and greatly upset. He is in fear and is in dismay because his army has lost a battle, one which he thought they should have won and he is questioning God as to why. God tells him it is because some of the Israelites have been disobedient. They have sinned against God by taking things that God had forbid them to take. Joshua did not know this, but God knew, and God had not been with them when they went into battle because of it—so they lost.

Now, God is telling Joshua to find the ones who stole the goods and punish them and destroy the forbidden goods. Then, God will once again be with Israel and Joshua will lead them into victory against the enemies.

There is a lesson to learn here. It is obedience. God loves us but he requires obedience. As a just Father he will discipline those who disobey Him. Just as our parents love us, they also expect us to be obedient to them, otherwise we have to face consequences. God will never forsake His children, but He will discipline them for their own good, just as our parents would do.

Let’s think upon this and be obedient out of love and reverencere to God. For He is with us and He says “Fear Not” to us as well. He will lead us to victory if we listen to Him and do what He says.

Memorize this verse as a reminder to “Fear Not” and neither be dismayed.

Blessings to you daily as you memorize His word.
